I admit it: that whole pretrial hearing was, among other things, just plain depressing. And listening to the recordings of the phone calls from Paul Devoe (from jail) to Sharon Wilson and Tiffany Waldrup was somewhat bizarre.
In the Wilson call, Devoe sometimes seemed to try to answer Wilson's questions in a somber, serious tone, but then he would sound really upset that she thought he might have been stealing money from her purse. He was very insistent that he was only looking for cigarettes and seemed to really want her to believe that he would never steal money from her, just wanted cigarettes! The cigarette argument was just weird.
Also, he seemed genuinely surprised that law enforcement had seized his trailer AND his car. Why would he even be concerned about those things when he was on the lam?
Also, in the Waldrup call, he sounded depressed about his situation but then became very chatty, practically insisting that she write him. He laughed allot in that call. Once again, just weird.
